New Episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!!

What’s going on everyone, we’re back with another episode of (title pending) for you!

This time up, Tank and I help you get ready for “Back to School” by recommending some great flicks that revolve around the scholastic experience. Not a top ten list per se, just a discussion of some of our favorite movies set in or about school! “Back to School”, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, “Lean on Me”, “The Breakfast Club”… we got you covered, check it out!

It’s a really fun discussion, and serves as a good counterpoint to the lackluster movies that were offered last week. In fact, the box office suffered a bit of a historic slump last weekend. Tank and I will bring you up to speed in the “Box Office Roundup”… and then I’ll tell you where it’s at with the two new releases, “The Words” and “The Cold Light of Day”.

It was a really fun episode, you should definitely check it out! You can download it directly, here, or look for us on iTunes using the keywords (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!

Movies That Everyone Should See: “The Breakfast Club”

I woke up this morning, and what did I see?

“The Breakfast Club” was on my TV.

I promise, I won’t expose you to my poetry often, it’s just that sometimes I have something really insightful that I feel will benefit or illuminate everyone, as in the case above.

True story though, pulled up the tv tray, pouring me some cereal and there it was. “The Breakfast Club”. On a premium channel no less, so no commercials. Are you gonna NOT switch to that?? Of course you’re gonna. Plus – I’m eating breakfast, how ironic! So I’m watching it, it’s a little way in, and I guess my newfound perspective as a blogger has me watching it a little more closely than usual.

And you know what? It’s great. I mean, that movie is just great. So so awesome. I felt like I was watching it with fresh eyes, and the greatness of it really just struck me hard.

I know, I know. NEWSFLASH! Right? But, you know, there are people out there who haven’t seen these things, folks! I spent a lot of time this weekend checking out other people’s blogs and… it’s a younger generation out there. There was one kid who said “Jaws” was boring. Man, these movies are getting OLD now. We have to protect these flicks, keep them alive, in the discussion. That’s up to us!

So. Seeing as I was looking for excuses to write-up older movies anyways, I decided I would write this series about Movies That Everyone Should See. If you want to call yourself a film fan, and you haven’t seen one of these flicks, my opinion of you loses points. If you’re a casual viewer and you haven’t watched them, what the hell are you waiting for. These will be the no brainer, mortal lock, absolute shoo-in, first ballot hall of fame type movies that there’s absolutely no excuse for not having seen.

Let’s start here. The Breakfast Club.
